- Solitude helps both in intense thinking and also in giving the brain a chance to quiet down.
- It’s hard to think intensively with a lot going on around you.
- Even extroverts can benefit from solitude.
- Start small. Just find a few minutes throughout the day to build a habit of solitude.
- Social media and solitude can coexist.
The four ways solitude benefits leaders:
- Moral Courage
- Emotional Balance
